This is a direct invocation to the ghost of New Wave, meeting a groove-oriented indie flavor with a dream-pop vocal. It’s open, uncluttered, and lives by that early snare hit - as pure a representation of the remaining influence of 80’s bands like Simple Minds and Crowded House as there ever was.

You are going to fall in love with the melody, but you’ll stick around after for the whole vibe. It’s a mesmerizing combination of fuzzy synth, organic drum kit, and atmospheric guitar. Answers, the latest single from Austin act Light Wheel, falls into orbit as a circular rhythmic pattern, but grows into its role as a blueprint for finding solace the more you listen to it.

Light Wheel is a musical act from Austin, Texas formed by vocalist-songwriter Tyagaraja and producer Evan Dunivan. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
